Sources familiar with the matter confirmed that Huijin had submitted the financing plan to the State Council, China's Cabinet, the report said.

If getting the green light, Huijin will inject the capital raised through the bond issuance into the Export-Import Bank of China and China Export & Credit Insurance Corp, two policy banks that had the smallest scale of capital.

The two banks were going through their current business for the reforms set to start in late May. Huijin may issue the bonds around the time the reforms begin, an unnamed source close to the matter disclosed.
